NIK RADIO INTERVIEW

Over the last year I have become a really big fan of several of the Nik software plug-ins for the Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom programs. In particular, Silver EFX Pro 2, Viveza 2 and Nik Sharpener Pro 3 have become indispensable tools in my image workflow. Not to mention the amazing and very popular Snapseed […]

RETAIL THERAPY – PHOTOGRAPHER STYLE

I admit to being a complete shopaholic when it comes to photographic accessories. I just keep on buying different brands and models of ‘things’ until I finally settle on a product I am completely satisfied with. Online reviews are useful and aid me in making a purchase decision, but it is really my own use […]

I […]

CANON AUSTRALIA PROFESSIONAL SERVICES [CPS] INTERVIEW – ‘GEAR IN ACTION’

I was recently interviewed for Canon Australia’s CPS Pro website and the content of the interview is now online at CPS Australia.

I still believe the Seal Skinz are an excellent glove for outdoor photography in cold weather. […]

WATERFALL DRILL AT FOX GLACIER NEW ZEALAND – PHOTO OF THE MONTH
